After a resurgent 2015, On-U Sound will kick off the new year with vinyl re-presses of the first four African Head Charge albums. All have been re-cut at ‘Dubplates & Mastering’ in Berlin for maximum bass pressure. They also include printed inner with sleeve notes by Steve Barker (On The Wire).
The groundbreaking debut album My Life In A Hole In The Ground from 1981 plays on both the title and concept of David Byrne and Brian Eno’s My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. Built upon sparse backing tracks constructed by Adrian Sherwood, the producer invited Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah (who had studied under Count Ossie in the rasta drumming camp at Wareika Hill in Jamaica) to lay down hand percussion patterns and breaks on top, augmented by stereo-strafed effects and the occasional burst of Sun Ra-style horns. The result is a unique mixture of traditional African rhythms, dub and free jazz. Features DJ favourite “Stebeni’s Theme” and “Far Away Chant”, used to famously gruesome effect by David Lynch in the film Wild At Heart.
